Key Modules, Theme, and Distribution Used 
Drupal Commerce Commerce Coupon Commerce Authnet Commerce VBO Commerce Back Office Commerce Affiliate Commerce Recurring Commerce Card on File Commerce Extra Tokens Commerce Stamps Com Commerce Customizable Products Omega
Why these Modules, Theme, and Distribution were Chosen 

We chose omega because of it's ability to be rapidly deployed and it's responsive nature. We utilized all of the common Drupal Commerce contrib modules as well as some uncommon ones to provide advanced e-commerce functionality. The modules allowed us to offer subscription products, ability to pack and print shipping from the admin side, ability to track and issue order comissions, and the ability to offer customizable products (gifts and gift certificates).

Why Drupal Was Chosen 
We used Drupal Commerce because of it's ability to be molded into any kind of e-commerce store. Even thought the client only has 3 products, they had special needs for their new website including affiliates, recurring orders, fulfillment and more.
Describe the Project (Goals, Requirements, and Outcome) 

Milkin Cookies wanted to move their website from 3D cart so that they could have more control over the website functionality and not be stuck in a hosted ecommerce solution. We built them a 100% custom Drupal Commerce site from the ground up. This provided them the ability to have more granular control over their sites functionality and interaction with customers.

 

The best new features that they gained were:

  • Affiliate links that provide tracking of affiliate sales and the ability to automatically award comission based on a percentage of each sale (only for commisionable products).
  • The ability to print USPS postage from Drupal Commerce by interfacing with Stamps.com. This saves fulfillment a lot of time by not having to do douple entry into another shipping system like USPS click and ship. 
  • The ability to offer customizable products in the form of gift certificates. Customers can personalize the gift  certificate for their intended recipient. 
  • The ability to offer automatic renewals of their product subscriptions. Customers purchase a subscription and an order is automatically created each month that contains only the renewed products. The shipping is recalculated, the card on file is authorized, and the order is placed in to a pending state to be processed. This gives them much more flexibility than using a recurring service through PayPal or Auth.net because all of the transactions are handeled within the site itself and all events are exposed to Rules for enhancing functionality.
